Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. There are several products in the Juvederm family. They all are used to help people address the facial signs of aging. Each product in the Juvederm line features different bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid. The different products are each tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency.
Comparing Juvéderm and Restylane
Juvéderm and Restylane are both considered noninvasive procedures. This means that no surgery is required for either. They also both use hyaluronic acid to treat wrinkles via volume.
Juvéderm and Restylane have similar long-term results. Juvéderm may work slightly more quickly and, in some cases, may last longer — this comes at a slightly higher cost. Your provider might recommend one filler over another based on your needs and the area being treated.
How does Juvederm work?
Juvederm works by adding volume to the facial tissue through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. It stimulates the production of the connective tissue that plumps the skin (collagen). As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. This increases the appearance of sagging and wrinkling of the facial skin.
Juvederm injections contain a small amount of pain-reducing lidocaine. This will help minimize any pain or discomfort you feel during treatment and make it go away quickly.
I recently had a breast augmentation and lift done 3 months ago with Dr. Megan Dreveskracht at La belle Vie. From my consultation to my 3 month post op check both Dr and staff have been great! Front office super friendly, compassionate and personable. Clinical staff was friendly and thorough i felt safe and in good hands. I was extremely nervous since I had never had surgery before so I did not know what to expect but everyone made me feel super comfortable once I was in the operating room. Dr. Dreveskracht was amazing she answered all of my questions, checked in on me the same night as my surgery and was prompt in her responses to all of my texts and emails while I was in recovery. I am very happy with the outcome and cannot wait to see the end result when everything is done healing. Thank you La Belle Vie team!!!
Dr. Dreveskracht was amazing start to finish. She was so informative, warm, friendly and made me feel very comfortable going forward with the procedure. So much that I cancelled my other consultations because I knew she was the one I had to have. She even personally called to check up on me later that evening to make sure I was well. Highly recommend her to any of my friends.
I deeply value Dr. Dreveskracht’s expertise and down-to-earth personality.
